Some people play defense and some people play offense. A lot of people try to bring the offensive guys down if they can't play defense. He rules the post... Who cares about defense?
When you get 24pts and give up 24pts...whats the difference? Defense is key...doesnt have to be shot down but help defense, respectable, can make some good defensive plays at critical moments would help. In fact if he doesnt wanna play D? Thats fine...how about passing? For a big man who can score in many ways downlow and has range...he cant pass for shyt. And that to me is more of an issue than his D. Like Curry both struggle and when doubled or pressured they cant make the pass in route to a bucket. Notice a lot of big men praised can do just that. Tim Duncan, Elton Brand, Shaq. Eh
Only reason his D was brought up was because someone tried to compare him to KG. Stupid comparison. Thats why his D is getting mentioned/bashed.
